**ATTENTION Thank you to everyone who continues to be interested in Montana Audubon’s citizen science projects! While Montana Audubon will not be conducting in-person citizen science training due to COVID-19, our critical bird research will continue because birding happens to be the perfect social distancing activity! We encourage surveys to be done individually or within your close networks but keeping 6 ft apart. Our top priority is public safety and we feel a strong responsibility to our volunteers, supporters, and fellow Montanans.
You don’t need to be a professional biologist to contribute valuable observations to science and have a great time doing it. Consider joining one of these citizen efforts and help provide valuable information about the birds, wildlife, and natural systems of Montana and beyond. Each project provides a unique opportunity to engage with the communities we serve, in the habitat’s and Important Bird Areas we’re working to protect. As we enter 2020, Montana Audubon is in a position to leverage our volunteer network to continue promoting the conservation of species of concern through citizen science. There is a project for everyone, and a project almost every month of the year.
Take a look at what we accomplished in 2019, and get prepared for what’s to come in 2020.
